Money in Global Society Colloquium

July 4- 9, 2023  – Moise Palace, Cres

The first decades of this century have seen significant bouts of financial instability, private and public sector debt crises, geopolitical tensions, technological innovation, and the escalation of the climate crisis – all of which have led to adaptations in terms of monetary and fiscal policy, banking, and financial markets. Although they have been discussed from different standpoints, they invite a more fundamental conversation about the adequate framework for the analysis of money and finance in our time.

Money in Global Society Colloquium is scheduled from 4-9 July at the Center for Advanced Studies situated in the beautiful Moise Palace on the island of Cres, Croatia, in the central Adriatic. It will afford a unique opportunity for a group of participants with diverse professional and cultural backgrounds to engage with big-picture questions, ambivalences (“gray areas”), and dilemmas that underlie the operation of the global financial system in its current form. The colloquium will consist of discussions on current events, participant presentations, and framework brainstorming, and the participants will take an active role in defining the program.


Young Scholars Initiative provides a home to students, young professionals, or others who embrace new and critical ways of thinking about the economy. YSI at INET fosters conversations between like-minded peers and connects young scholars to the institute’s vast network of economists. YSI at INET provides a platform for pursuing your interests in new economic thinking and a lively and stimulating intellectual environment for collaborating on furthering our understanding of the economy.

Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) is dedicated to pursuing innovative economic theories and methods that address society’s most pressing concerns. Founded in 2009, it is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization supporting relevant, pioneering work in the following issue areas:

  • The Relationship Between finance and the broader economy
  • Inequality And Distribution
  • The Economics Of Innovation
  • Environment and resource sustainability

INET is building a global community with thousands of new economic thinkers through our grantees and research networks, partnerships with leading universities and institutions, high-profile events, and growing student movements. Interactive education tools are provided at no charge to audiences worldwide.

INET work is grounded in history and is multidisciplinary by nature. We accept that complexity and uncertainty are inherent in the economic and financial systems, and we question theories based on the flawed assumption that humans always behave rationally and predictably.
